The Kudix Mug Holders of the MonthSay hello to our first ever Mug Holder couple, Sunayana and Nandith - August 2014
Loyalty is a virtue we cherish. We’re overwhelmed with the kind of loyalty Toit has inspired in people and we’ve decided that it’s time to do some rewarding.
Presenting the Kudix Mug Holder of the Month. It’s our small way of recognising and thanking our patrons, who return week after week, with friends and family in tow, and make Toit the boozy, buzzing brewpub it is.
If you’ve paid close attention, you’ll notice that this month it says Holder(s) of the month. That’s because this time, we’ve got not one, but two worthy candidates- say hello to our first ever Mug Holder couple, Sunayana and Nandith.
Sunayana and Nandith are like the royal couple of Toit. While most people boast of having been regulars since opening day, these two have been regulars since before that. They were here for the pre-opening tasting, and they’ve been coming back ever since. They also hold something of a Toit record with most number of beers ordered in one sitting. We decided to find out more about that, and them.
Q.1 What are your favourite Toit Brews?
Nandith: The Weiss. That’s my favourite.
Sunayana: I am a total Basmati Blonde fan.
Q.2 What’s the most memorable memory at Toit?
We come here so often it’s kind of impossible to pick one particular incident. There are so many. This one time, we were here from 12 in the afternoon till closing time at 11 pm. We ran up a crazy bill. I think we ordered some 106 odd pints, of which 46 were Weiss. Guru was part of that group. So it’s the same story he shared.

Also the time when we started singing and got everyone to sing along. And we could only get away with something like that at Toit. Any other place would have probably thrown us out!
There was also this one time that a friend of ours, Indira, got lost here, because of how big it is. So lots of different memorable things have happened.
Q.3 Have you always been a beer lover?
Sunayana: Yes! We absolutely love beer, and always have. Nandith likes other kinds of alcohol too, but I’m a through and through beer person.
Q.4 What are the other kinds of beers you like?
Nandith: I like dark beers, so Stouts.
Sunayana: We travel a lot, and because we love beer so much, we make it a point to try the beers everywhere we go. Toit beers are the benchmark we compare them against, to see how good or bad they are.
Q.5 What’s the most amount of beer you’ve had in one sitting?
Sunayana: I think 4-5.
Nandith: I think somewhere between 8-13.
Q.6 Do you take on other couples in drinking sessions?
We don’t take on other couples or anything like that, but we love our beer and it’s usually pretty crazy when we sit down to drink. That’s why you will always find us here.
Crazy more in terms of the kind of bills we run up…
Q.7 Crazy how? Dancing on table tops crazy?
No. Nothing of that sort. We’re very well-behaved drunks. Crazy more in terms of the kind of bills we run up, and the number of hours we end up spending here.
Q.8 Apart from the beer, do you have any favourite foods here?
Sunyaya: I love the soups here. They’re really good.
Nandith: Yeah. The soups are very good. And the pizzas and prawns on fire are absolutely insane.
We love Toit and we’ve been coming here before it even opened
Q.8 How does it feel, being the first ever Kudix Mug Holder couple?
Sunayana: It feels great. When I first got to know that we are going to be featured as the Mug Holders, I was totally shocked. I couldn’t believe they picked us.
Nandith: It is a great feeling. We love Toit and we’ve been coming here before it even opened. The staff here are fantastic, they really know how to treat their customers. This is like home to us!
Watch this space to meet our Kudix Mug Holder for the month of September. You never know, it might just be you!
